From: Quantifying the effect of swab pool size on the detection of influenza A viruses in broiler chickens and its implications for surveillance

Test Subtype Number positive (%) Mean virus titer for LFI detected samples in EID50/ml Lowest virus titer for LFI detected samples in EID50/ml
FluDETECT H5 16 (37%) 102.98 102.32
H7 36 (58%) 103.62 102.65
VetScan H5 12 (28%) 103.03 102.39
H7 26 (42%) 103.73 102.65
  1. aFor all PCR positive single-swab samples (i.e., those with CT ≤ 35), the mean virus titer was 102.43EID50/ml and 103.73EID50/ml for the H5 and H7 viruses respectively
